The work of the Session is divided amongst several Teams.

All Teams are appointed by and accountable to the Session. Each Team has a Session member to serve as liaison or chairperson. Orientation/training is provided for Team members as new people become involved in the work of our congregation. Each year, Teams prepare a proposed Team budget with designated line items.
